(( Norfolk Southern is increasing its hostile bid for Conrail to 10- billion- dollars, roughly a 10- percent increase.
That tops an offer from cross- state rival C-S-X by roughly a billion- and- a- half- dollars.
Even with this new N-S bid, analysts differ on the what kind of an effect it will have.
Some say it will win over shareholders at Conrail, the dominant railroad in the northeast.
Others believe the original deal inked between C-S-X and Conrail has been written in a way that will prevent nearly any other offer from being heard.
And still others believe this bidding war will reach a stalemate, and the two aggressors will eventually get together and divy up the spoils of Conrail between them.))
